mailed u check. Kacli crulltor leceived
1 37-lnii per cent, on the dollar. One
of the (hecks'wnH for four cents. The
hlphest (heck was for Jl IT.
Tucker ei Maxey did business In far
bondale In the fall of isrw. They had
been itinnlnp n little procery stoie In

and In the rouise of six months 1m
ptessed the commercial world with the
b'-lief that they were a pair of Indus,
tilotis jouiip men who were worth one
hundicd cents on the dollar
When they ilNcoxeicd that drumineis
weie anxious to sell, Tucker & Maxey
sat down and thoupht.
The lesult of their cogitations was
that they boupht $.'.i.ona worth of poods
lu thiee months. When the creditots
closed in on them they found less than
Jl.nni) worth of poods in the Tucker &
Mnvey store. AVh.it became of the
cither more than JSJ.onn woith of poods
l still quite as much a mystery as who
blew up the Maine.

they swore they sold the wapon to n
man whoe name they could not iccall,
and that six weeks npo Tt. P. Stuart,

wapon in the hay loft of Maxey's
father's barn In Clifford township. Sits

SOLICITOR WATSON ASKED TO
ANSWER THE QUESTION.
Recorder Connell nnd His Cabinet
Ask the City's Legal Representa
tive for nn Opinion ns to the Bear
ing of Judge Carpenter's Decision
on Outstanding Liens Tho Build
ing Inspector Must Bo Stricter In
tho Futuie A Five Year Limit for
At a mot Important meeting of He
coidcr Cnnnell'fi cabinet, held yester
day morning, City Solicitor AVatson
was instructed to furnish nn opinion
as to whether theie Is any way out of
the chaotic condition Into which .ludpe
Carpenter's decision In the Sturpes
case has thrown nil pavlnp liens now
outstanding against pioperty owners.
.ludpe Carpenter decided that prop
erty owners could not be compelled to
pay for the keeping of pavements In
repair for n teitn nf years, lu addition
to p.i.vltip for the nrlplnal cost of lay
ing such pavements that Is to my,
wheie the pavlnp otdlnanccs pt oxide
for the keeping of the pave lu repair
for a term of yeats. the propettv owner
Is not necessailly compelled to pay his
assessment, the contention being that
xx hen a continctor bids for a paxe with
the tiniletstandlnp that he will have to
keep It In lepalr for a teim of xeais,
he will bid hlphcr than If he wete bid
ding simply for the constuictlon of the
BHKS A WAY OUT.
Nearly all of the paving ordinance
passed by the councils of this city have
contained a provision leqtililnp the
conti actor to keep the paxement In le
palr for a term of ycai, penctally live.
It would seem thnt the liens outstand
ing apalnst the propeity owneis along,
the line of these pavements Mould be
Invnltdntod under a stilct Interpreta
tion of .ludpe CarpcntetV decision, but
City Solicitor AA'iitsoti doesn't think so,
and for this leasoii he was asked for
an opinion ns to the best wa out of
It was decided that the suppesllon be
made to councils that In futuio all pav
lnp nnd sewer ordinances be diawn to
piovlde for the pament of the entire
nsscfrsmont wlthlni live years. That will
pi event the expenses, trouble and loss
to the cltv throuph the Ming of llen.s
xxheie the ordinances allow ten yeais
for the payment of paving and sewer
Another Important step taken by the
cabinet was in icpard to tho l--ulnp of
building penults. As Is veiy well
known, theie Is an oidinance pioxidltig
that befoie n building can be elected
within the city limits the plans and
specification" must be ptesented to the
building Inspector for his appioxal,
after which appioxal the contractor
must take out a penult.
This ordinance is at pie-ent not be
ing lived up to In the way that it was
Intended It should be when passed.
AVhcn the ordinance flist went Into
force the examination of the plans and
specifications xvas made the primary
consideration!, while the issue of per
mits and the collection of fees for the
same was made a secondaiy lonsider
ation. The rcveise Is now the case. Manx
building ate elected in all part" of the
city befoio the plan.s have excr been
seen by the building Inspector, much
less examined, and in this nmiii'.er the
whole purpose of the ordinance name
ly, the prevention of the construction
of improper and unsafe bulldlnps Is
defeated. The building inspectot now
devotes a huge poitlon of his time to
dtlvlnp mound the ( Ity, looking out
for new bulldlnps nnd then dunning
the contractor for the pilce of the per
mit when one is- found, thus apparent
ly making the collection, of pcimlt fees
the primary consideiatlon.
It was the unanimous opinion of nil
the heads of the departments pie.-ent
at estcrda's meeting that this meth
od of doing business should he stopped
at ohce. Director of Public Safety
AA'oimser announced that he would
pive strict orders to the building In
spec tor to Insist upon having all con
tractus submit their plans and speci
fications for his appioval before com
mencing work on any building. He
will also direct the Inspector to arrest
any and all coutt actors xxhn fall to do
this nnd to prosecute them to the full
est extent of the law.

TO BUYJWRE LAND.
Poor Board Decides That It Is Ad

It Is very probable that befoie a

of fin m land, situated to the xxom of
the farm lands siinoundiup the Hill

The boaid has beeiv deslious of pur

on more than one occasion, but no ac

taken until e-teiday afternoon' meet

the d'liectoia thought icasor.ible and
Durlnp the past week or two the
owner of tho land and the members of
the home committee haxe apt cod upon

John Devlin, 7.1 jears old, an old man
